David Reads at Corner Bookstore

History fans in the New York area are invited to the Corner Bookstore on Tuesday, August 13, to hear James Corbett David read from his new book Dunmore’s New World. Aside from being a fascinating read (the titular hero, a Scottish lord who served as governor of Virginia, issued his own emancipation proclamation in the eighteenth century and later waged an unauthorized war with the Indians of the Ohio Valley), the book also possesses one of the greatest subtitles in UVa Press history. The reading begins at 6:00. Full details are here.
